This is a full-time, two-year programme resulting in the award of a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Business and Management by the University of Lincoln for students who want to develop the knowledge and skills relevant to the needs of employers in either the private or public sector. The course is ideal for those who prefer a more practical perspective than a traditional degree course. It combines academic and vocational elements which prepare students for future career paths, changing existing job roles or for continuing study.
UCAS Course Code: 002N
The HND is made up of modules which aim to introduce students to the subject of Business and Management whilst developing the skills required at this level. Topic areas include Finance, Marketing, Economics, Careers and Organisational Behaviour. These skills include both verbal and written communication, information technology, numeracy, critical thinking and employability
The requirements for applicants progressing from full-time education are 40 UCAS points/NVQ3 or equivalent level 3 qualification. Some applicants come through the experiential route (relevant work or life experience). We have a long and successful record of supporting mature students, many of whom left formal education some time ago.
On award of the HND participants can apply for progression onto the BA (Hons) Business Management at UCNL.
A variety of assessment methods are used, including:
